As of today, the teeny tiny Palm smartphone can be purchased unlocked for use on most networks in the US. We knew this day was coming, as Palm opened up orders for the phone back in June.

The tiny Palm phone can now be your only smartphone

A new update has made the tiny Palm phone a much bigger deal, with the ability to now have it as your only device, not just a companion gadget to your everyday smartphone.

mophie Palm juice pack, powerstation keychain are cute and ironic

As if Palm's comeback wasn't ludicrous enough, accessory maker mophie decided to take the bait and take the joke even further. The Verizon exclusive smartphone extension isn't really meant to replace your smartphone and is supposed to be used for very light activities when away from the bigger phone. It wasn't meant to last long either as far as battery life is concerned but now mophie's new juice pack and powerstation keychain battery cases promise you almost a day's worth of squinting and cramped typing.

Essential Phone PH-2 could change our lives, if we’re ready

Essential Phone PH-2 appeared in carrier files this week - but we might not be ready for it just yet. If what Andy Rubin predicted is meant to come to fruition, we might have to look to another device to see how well we're prepared for the sort of future for which Essential is prepared. That other device was the Palm Phone (2018) and it did not do very well.

Palm Phone (2018) Review: A sign of future greatness

Palm Phone (2018) Review: A sign of future greatness

They created a device just called Palm, and they've made this device exclusive to Verizon. Verizon will sell this device to users who already have a phone or are looking to buy a phone and will pair it with said phone. This is basically a smaller version of your primary smartphone.

Palm’s tiny Android phone coming to Verizon next week

Palm’s tiny Android phone coming to Verizon next week

Palm’s comeback is almost a joke but it’s dead serious about it. While other smartphone makers are scrambling to reach bigger and bigger screen sizes, Palm rebelliously goes the other direction with a phone that’s no bigger, or even smaller, than your palm. And while it might be too easy to classify it as a smartphone accessory like a smartwatch, the new Palm is a bona fide Android phone that will let you leave your actual smartphone at home. That is until you actually need a screen you don’t have to squint at.

Palm made a beautiful, ridiculous mistake of a new phone

The brand Palm revealed a new "phone" today that looks nice and has very little reason to exist. Much in the same way the first wave of smartwatches' first job was to solve a problem that did not exist, this first Palm smartphone for the year 2018 is tiny, beautiful, and quite unnecessary.

Verizon Palm smartphone coming before the year or world ends

When was the last time you held a Palm in your hand? And, yes, we’re talking about the device, not another person’s (or your own) palm.
